State child welfare officials are investigating the death of a 3-week-old girl Tuesday in the South Side Chatham neighborhood.

The state Department of Children and Family Services is investigating the girl’s parents for alleged neglect, according to spokeswoman Veronica Resa.
There are two other children in the household, Resa said. The agency previously investigated a report against the family in 2012, which was unfounded.
An autopsy Wednesday was inconclusive pending further studies, according to the medical examiner’s office.
